Two exactly similar answers show that the source of info for both must be same. No problem with that. But, courtesy demands they should have acknowledged the source.

The wrist watch was invented by the Swiss watch maker, Patek Phillippe in the late 1800s; though at first only women wore them. The man's wristwatch was invented by Louis Cartier in the early 1900s for Mr. Alberto Santos-Dumont. Dumont was working on the development of aircraft and found a pocket watch inconvenient to look at while in the aircraft. He asked his friend Cartier to design a watch for him.
